Puella Magi Madoka Magica: 12 Newtype Anime Awards

The first ever Newtype Anime Awards, held in Tokushima on Saturday, October 08, 2011. These was the start of a hopefully long-lasting tradition of anime awards. There are 21 categories including best male character, best female character, best mascot character, Soundtrack, Theme Song, Directing, Scenario, Art, Effects and the unique Best Female and Male seiyuu awards. Why unique? Because they are the first of the kind that are not rewarded for a specific role, but for an all-round impression of the voice actors.

Here is the list of the winners:

To add a simple comment: I have never been as stupid as today – I just typed every instance of “Puella Magi Madoka Magica” by hand when I could’ve copy and pasted it. And they are so many! Poor Shinigami-hands!
